Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas would not apologize Thursday for the misogynistic comments he made about WNBA players.
“I’m trying to figure out what I would be sorry about,” Arenas said. “So basically, all the ugly girls are mad. All the ugly ones want an apology for being ugly.”
Earlier this week, Arenas posted three photos on Instagram with captions complaining that WNBA players don’t wear skimpy outfits.
“Dont get me wrong, they have few #cutiepies but there’s a whole alotta #beanpies running around,” Arenas wrote in a caption of a video of two women playing sports in lingerie.
The WNBA released a statement Wednesday calling Arenas’ comments “repugnant, utterly disrespectful and flat-out wrong.”
When asked Thursday how he would respond to his daughter if she told him she wanted to dress modestly, Arenas said, “See, I’m petty. As a father, I would let her dress the way she dresses. As a petty person, I would laugh at the way she dresses. Period.”
